Once Upon a Blasted Freezing March Day

Cowgirl Head
... three intrepid adventures

Set off across the northern English countryside

and thought that setting the GPS for no motorways would be a smart idea. What a silly notion.

And one to many a little village driving through

The three found themselves stuck in the dangers of traffic and horrors of Manchester’s construction and wondered why the construction had to take over many miles of roadway when simply fixing a few miles at a time would seem the most sensible process.

The male entertained himself with taking plenty of photo

And after nearly four hours of driving on a trip that was intended to take only two the three finally arrived at their destination and approached the medieval gates that many a traveller had come across before.

York had thoughtlessly left the city gates open. The three were dissappointed that at this time no traderous heads were displayed.

Lesson learned in such warm temperatures as this: windy country driving is probably not the best idea when your poorly designed rental car’s windscreen wash pipes freeze over...oh and when the cheap knock-off gps offers no motorways it means not a single motorway and you will go miles and miles and miles out of your way to avoid one.

Next up: A plethora of photos to bore you of our York adventures. Three days was not enough for this one city.

from one of the adventures (or should that be adventurers?)
LOL - very funny report!

At this point, I would like to say that at least one of the passengers wishes to absolve herself of any input in the decision making and was just along for the ride!
